It was a busy day.

We showed the rental house this morning and are praying for wisdom and discernment on the best person/family to occupy the home. We want to be obedient to Him; that is the best way to live. Praise God that we have received several leads to follow, which is different than last summer. We would like to have the home occupied by July 1, 2008.

While driving around today, Ella took a little snooze in the car.

I had an appointment in central Denver with my ear surgeon. I had ear surgery in August 2006 and need my hearing and ears checked 1x per year. Fortunately, I checked out well. Also the appointment was straight-forward and quick, so Grandma didn’t have to do as much work as yesterday when it came to holding and entertaining The Bun.

After the doctor, we headed back home and had the Early Intervention Program reps visited our home to evaluate Ella. After a 2 hour appointment, they determined that Ella does qualify. They are recommending OT once per week and PT twice per week. The coming weeks will be telling. Services are supposed to be in place no later than 28 days from now, likely sooner.

Our goal is to find therapists that work for the Early Intervention Program plus also accept private insurance. This way, we can use them for free through the Early Intervention Program and supplement more visits (if needed) via our health insurance. Please pray that we will come across the right individuals to help Ella grow and thrive. These therapists play such a vital role in her development forward. We were so blessed in Gainesville with a great OT and PT. We can only hope that we find 2 more special individuals that will come to love Ella and want to help her.

Once the appointment was finished, Ella decided that she wanted to read her Elmo book…she was rolling around getting really excited.

When it cooled down a bit, Grandma and I took another walk to Super Target. Although I cannot take Ella inside, it is still nice to walk to the Super Target, get some exercise and just watch people from afar. The weather in Denver was beautiful today and it is so nice to be able to get outside with Ella.

And of course, we always have to watch the summer sunset from our patio. The Bun looked so cute in her hat.

We praise Him for our baby girl. Almost each day, we are given an opportunity to share about Ella and our journey. This morning, the potential renter for our home was clearly touched and gave me a hug when leaving. The opportunities rise up all the time.

And each time we share, we are reminded to trust Him…to trust Him completely.
